I’ve never had a sobriquet because my first name is short. I had a nickname before my parents gave me a name but that’s about it. I don’t really mind. I prefer giving people a sobriquet but I don’t tell them of course. What’s the fun in that? It’s usually to neighbours who annoy me. Or people in general who act idiotically and those are everywhere. The sobriquets are not very nice but people like that don’t deserve better. It’s never anything personal. If it was someone I know, it would only be nice ones. People should really think before they act so they don’t need to be called names. I guess that’s too much to ask.
What I call people isn’t really rude. Since it’s only for myself, no harm is done. I wouldn’t go and say things to peoples faces. To smokers, for example, I call them chimneys or cancer stick suckers but it’s really their addiction and not mine. They can smoke themselves to death as long as I can breathe clean air. They annoy me the most when they pollute my air. Some smokers seem to think they can do what they want. They can even smoke in front of their children which I’ve seen a couple of times lately. They must really have small brains (pea-brains) if they think it won’t affect others. Second-hand smoking is the worse and it’s also bad for pets. I feel sorry for those who are close to smokers and even more those who are slaves of tobacco. They also must have tar legs because they can’t move away from doors or their balconies. I don’t think they even realise themselves that they are addicted to the stuff. There are ways to quit but they find all the excuses in the book not to. Nothing is easy but if you don’t even try, you’re just lazy.
People not having common sense is a good victim for me. People who don’t understand there are other people around. You see that the most when you live in a department building. They slam their front door no matter what hour. Door slammers I call them. Then people who put the light on when it midday, Light switchers. The worst are they once who can’t manage something simple. They can’t close doors or gates. There is a Finnish word for it but not so much in English. It’s ‘uusavuton’ It’s a person who isn’t incapable of doing anything because of excessive pampering. I wonder how people like that survive this life. You can’t wait for other people to do things for you. If you can’t even put garbage in a bin, you really need help and fast. It seems to be difficult to be organised too. You see that in recycling. People throw their cardboard in the bin without breaking them first and then they think the box is full. How lazy and helpless can people be? I could name a lot of things people do wrong but I don’t want to be a complainer. I’m just gonna make up sobriquets for my own amusement. I’m weird like that.
Blogging hasn’t been on my agenda since Sunday. But there is a reason for that. Studying about entrepreneurship for starters. Then I’ve been too tired to think about what to write. Maybe that’s frigid cold attitude to some people but that’s life. It doesn’t involve blogging all day. I do have a life outside the blogosphere. I’m not those who walk around with their mobiles in front of their faces. I don’t even have a phone like that. I don’t have the urge to make a big deal of myself. That goes with blogging and everything else I do.
There is a lot of self-centred bastards in the world and there are a lot of those online. On the internet, you can ignore them but when they live in your building, there’s no way out. It’s usually students who can’t be quiet when their friends visit them. Party is all they seem to do. I wonder when do they study. At least they don’t do it every night. Some people might have neighbours like that though. When they have parties they usually leave after midnight or so. They are not the worse. It’s those bloody smokers who stand in front of doors or stand on their balconies with their cancer sticks in their gobs. I feel really sorry for them for having an addiction like that. Some even wake up in the middle of the night to practice their disgusting habits. I call them tar legs because they never seem to walk anywhere. I guess it affects their vision too because they put the light on even if the sun is shining outside. Or maybe they stare at their mobiles all the time so their eyesight is that bad. All I’m gonna say, get help. Or just get cancer. That’s so much fun to have. Their choice. I stay away from people like that.
Sometimes humans sicken me. It feels like I’m with stupid. But only sometimes. There’s always one who doesn’t care about anything. Luckily you have a choice what kind of people you let into your life. Especially when you’re an adult. Life is not high school where you’re forced to spend time with idiots. They are like tumours. If you don’t get rid of them, it will make things worse. When it comes to strangers, then it’s much easier not to get involved with them in the first place. If someone thought this was a frigid cold post, this was tame compared what really goes inside my head. But those thoughts I keep to myself because I don’t attentionally want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
This is my biggest pet peeve, SMOKING.
Smoking is the most disgusting habit there is. You can’t go anywhere in peace without meeting these stick sucking addicts. You can’t even sit on your own balcony when they come out to pollute the air. Worst are hot summers when you want to sit outside. They don’t even seem to know what the smell is like. But how could they, they’ve become immune to it. They think they have the right to smoke where ever they go. They’re the most selfish people on this earth. Because of them, non-smokers have to live on their terms. Then smokers dare to complain that it’s the non-smokers that complain about smoking. Excuse me but it’s not our fault that you’re stupid enough to start smoking in the first place.
Smokers complain why they can’t smoke where they want. They think they’re being unfairly treated in their own country. But what to expect from nicotine addicts anyway. All they care about is where to get their next fix. It’s a drug but the effect is milder. Then they throw their butts everywhere. They don’t seem to know or care how much poison a cigarette has. Nice to take a walk in the park (or forest) and see these butts on the ground. Disgusting.
The worst smokers are parents. It’s seems smoking are more important than their kids health. If you’re having kids, smoking should be stopped for good. It won’t help if you keep that stick away from the kids. They will still be affected. When I see parents smoking in front of they’re kids, I feel sorry for them. They will become addicted the same way their parents have. Not to mention having health problems. Being a passive smoker is more unhealthy than smoking.
I’ve heard and read many excuses why not quit the habit. One say, it’s socializing. Other say it’s fun. The 3rd say, they’re too old to quit. Then there are those that are afraid there gonna get addicted to something else. Any excuse so they don’t have to do anything about it. It’s just laziness. There is help so why not seek it. I’ve known people who have stopped smoking and they have said, they had felt much better. If they have started again, that I don’t know. Some won’t stop no matter how sick they are.
There are people who doesn’t want to stop smoking. They’re too addicted. They rather suffer from illness than live a smoke free life. They have no respect for life whatsoever. If that’s not selfish, I don’t know what is. If they don’t care about their own health, why would they care for others.
There’s so many good things being a non-smoker. You save money. You’re teeth doesn’t become yellow. You smell better. You don’t have to go out when it’s cold or raining. You can taste food better. You’re healthy. You’re clothes doesn’t smell. You’re not chained to an addiction. You’re free. There’s a lot of good things.
If you really need a bad habit why not try something that doesn’t smell bad. How about something healthy for a change? Maybe start a hobby. Or maybe you do want cancer or any other illness. Maybe that’s fun to have. We all gonna die but I rather live a healthy life then a life with a smoke in my mouth. Quitting something is never easy but what is.
You only live once and I want to make the most of it without having to suffer from other people’s bad-smelling habits. If you want to quit, don’t be a quitter.
